It was unsurprising when Heaven was purchased by G.A.Y. a few years back, as the club has been enchanting London’s gay teenyboppers for years with cheesy pop and R&B hits. Where Heaven’s appearance is dark and cavernous, the music is certainly not, and the club tempts plentiful numbers of bouncy youths each week with the promise of cheap inebriation and Rihanna, Britney Spears and Duran Duran. Now that Bedrock has moved on to pastures new there are few big club nights taking place here, however gigs throughout the week range from pop princesses Kelis and Katy Perry to indie bands such as The Go! Team and Glasvegas. Monday nights play host to Popcorn, a mixed night more commonly known as student night thanks to drinks deals and music that becomes more listenable the more alcohol is consumed.

With four levels and five rooms, the club is large and the management like it to be packed to the rafters, so expect many uncomfortable (or comforting, depending on what tickles your fancy) squeezes on Friday and Saturday nights.

Bar staff exceptionally rude. Some training in customer service needed. All paying customers should be treated equally.

Fantastic venue with lots of space and a lively atmosphere! Drinks a little too pricey on a weekend but otherwise a great place to party in London!

Now officially taken over by G-A-Y, Heaven is buzzing with as much, if not more energy than ever before.

Saturday nights usually feature a PA by a huge act, recent stars: Lady GaGa, Lily Allen, Estelle, Alesha Dixon.

Pros:
- The DJs are great in all 4 rooms.
- Live PA's on Saturday.
- Cheap drinks on weekdays.
- Huge space, 4 rooms, different music in each room.

Cons:
- R&B room could do with some renovation and better air control.
- Coat queue is ridiculously long - although this has been approved lately.
- Barmen can be rude at times. Bar service is pretty poor.

GREAT night, even though I'm generally straight. No good gay clubs where I come from, so it was such a surprise, everyone was so lovely, great atmosphere, felt totally safe everywhere in the club. Everyone there is there to have a good time and there's no hassle. Ended up on the poles with my friend and a couple of random people. Gay or not, it's a great night out!

Although it's officially a gay club,if you go during the week you wont feel out of place if you're straight.Monday night is student night,free to get in with NUS and mixers are £2.50 all night.There's an r'n'b room,a dance room and the indie room,where you'll find your favourite hits from the white stripes,green day,christina and some of those 80's classics that we all have a love-hate relationship with.Super friendly atmosphere and very central.
